We understand the unique challenges faced by dedicated service members in the Armed Forces. If you are facing issues of bullying, harassment, discrimination, or bias, we know the toll it can take. Our Armed Forces Service Complaints team is here to be your advocate, providing unwavering support and leveraging our experience to guide you through the complexities of military service complaints. 

Under the Armed Forces Act 2006 (AFA 06) both serving or former members of the UK Armed Forces have the right to raise a service complaint if they feel they have been wronged on a matter that arises when they are subject to Service Law.
